    Damage/socketing question

    Hello there,

    I have a WW barbarian using an upgraded ethereal hone sundan 3x shael, fortitude armor, gore rider boots, highlord ammy, raven, dual leech ring, soul drainer gloves, arreat face helm and string belt.
    After might aura activated, my listed damage is 1.150-10k. I think min dmg is too low but the kill speed is average in hell.

    I have one open socket in helm.

    What to put there to make output dmg more usefull? min dmg jewel, max dmg jewel, ed jewel, something else?

    Is it worth upgrading arreats face and gore rider?

    This is PvM only. HC mode. Ladder.

    Rikstaker's guide recommends an Ith rune in the Arreat's Face, to give Damage to Mana% which will help when you encounter any Mana Leeching/Mana Burn monsters.

    I would go with Um for the resist since this is HC and 2 hand barbs suffer from resist problems I assume.

    his question is how to improve his dmg output, and without doing the math my guess would be a 40 ed jwl.

    upgrading for more defence is pretty much always a good choice, IF you have the str for them.

    Thx for your suggestions. I might upgrade those 2 pieces of equipment for some more defence.
    As for min damage being low, I guess I'll use an ed jewel with another good mod, no 40%ed for now.
